PF accuse UPND of planning to disrupt the August 12 Elections

Headlines PF accuse UPND of planning to disrupt the August 12 Elections

The Patriotic Front (PF) has said that it has unearthed a scam in which the opposition UPND is allegedly planning to cause mayhem on the 10th and 11th August.

PF Media Director Antonio charged that the UPND have done their calculations and realized that they do not have the numbers to win this year’s elections hence they have resorted to violence to disrupt the elections and discredit its outcome.

Mr. Mwanza has disclosed that the UPND are currently organizing 60,000 youths in Lusaka to cause mayhem on the 10th and 11 August in Mandevu compound.

“They are organizing these youths and want to have what they will call a social contract signing with these youths in Mandevu,” Mr. Mwanza said.

“The whole idea is that when they go to Mandevu with these 60,000 youths at Heroes stadium, the whole idea is that when the police go to Heroes stadium to stop this illegal meeting then UPND will unleash these youths to Mandevu and Matero; they’ll burn vehicles, they burn people’s tuntemba and they’ll also kill people,” he added.

The PF Media Director also disclosed that the party has so far identified three places, one in Neganega and two in Chawama where the UPND are training young people and grooming them into a militia specifically to unleash them on the 10th and 11th August to disrupt the peace in Lusaka and the Copperbelt.

Mr. Mwanza explained that the UPND are doing this to intimidate and instill fear in people in the PF strongholds to ensure that they do not turn up on elections day.

He said the party has since reported the matter to the police and will further make a formal complaint to the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) on Friday 23rd July 2021.

The PF Media Director has noted with regret that the UPND has resorted to violence to justify their impending loss on 12th August and use it as part of the claims they will use to petition the outcome of the general elections.

“We want the media to help us to send this message very clearly that UPND is not committed to peace adding that the peace pledge they signed was simply a gimmick to hoodwink Zambians that they are committed to peace.

  2. “Don’t feed the trolls (aka Kaizar Zulu).” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.
    You SHOULD try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how POORLY they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re NOT worth your time of day.

  4. PF is now in paranoia mode after feeling the heat, in 3 weeks time PF will no jobs. Just prepare yourselves for jail time as indictments wil be coming fast and furious in your way. This is one of the reasons why PF insisted Bill 10, so that they become paranoia they would use, bust Zambians are smarter.

  5. WAS PEACE AGREEMENT MEANT TO BRING PEACE ? WE TOLD YOU, FOR AS LONG AS ECL DID NOT SIGN THE PEACE PACT, THIS TYPE OF ILLUSIONS AND ACCUSATION WILL NEVER STOP.
    IF PF HAVE ALL FACTS AND PROOF, SHOULDNT THEY BE PRESENTING TO THEM TO POLICE OTHER THAN CONTINUOUS BARKING IN THE MEADIA?
    THIS ANTONIO Guy is becoming a troll, who needs to be ignored.

  6. If the opposition can organise 60,000 youths then you surely have no chance…really laughable…PF have now moved to their predictable tactic of scaremongering and fanning the the fires now that the ban on campaigns has been lifted. The dull inept President Lazy Lungu is hiding in the background letting his juniors issue threats.

  9. Interesting! You could actually smell a rat and tell something isn’t adding up. How has UPND all of a sudden turned around and begin to sign one peace accord after another promptly and publicising their commitment to peace. You could sese they had something up their sleeve. Please be on top of things we don’t want Zambia to burn, elections come and go.

  10. Are there no investigative organs in Zambia to have uncovered such an alleged plot? How can civilians know about “plots” before the investigative organs of government uncover such alleged “plots”? If there is any truth to such allegations, then the political party in government is 100% inept! Or is Mwanza also hold the position of the country’s investigative organs of government? This is an insult not only to the police but to all investigative organs of government.

  11. Cheap PF propaganda!

    This scheme was initiated by PF a few months ago. They plan to buy UPND regalia and use it cause mayhem on election day and blame UPND so that PF police ban people from monitoring the vote counting.

    This scheme was unearthed by ZWD last week. And PF are now running scared that their evil schemes will be thwarted by galant Zambians who want change.

    Most Zambians are not UPND but the see UPND as a vehicle to change.

    PF must go.

  12. Very cheap and hollow PF election propaganda. Now in turn i accuse PF of disrupting the once vibrant economy -my accusations actually have credibility and public traction.

  13. Whatever PF says the opposite is true. PF realises that they can’t the August 12 Elections so they are trying to disrupt the Election using their violent PF Cadres dressed in UPND Alliance Regalia. PF can smell defeat as most Zambians want a change of Govt on August 12. Zambians are prepared to put their lives on the line to protect the Vote. UPND Youths have no reason to disrupt an Election they are sure of winning. Its PF who want to spoil the broth becoz they are losing this Election on August 12.PF Election Riggers are going to find it difficult to Rig the August 12 Elections. Its the Voters who will protect their votes this year. The writing is on the wall

  14. The killings we saw at the start of the campaigns appeared premeditated only for the plan to be halted prematurely after the death of KK so now its about to be reactivated. How else would UPND go in these elections when its clear they have no numbers to unseat PF?. The only thing that doesn’t add up is the number of youths to be recruited to carry out the plan but let us be alert UPND, is capable of mayhem. You trust them with peace when they are losing at your own peril.

  15. UPND is a blood thirsty party. They have already warned that they will kill foreigners. They have killed in every election they have participated. These Mapatizya formula tribals are a curse to this country.

  16. TRYING EVERY TACTIC TO GET UPND DISQUALIFIED – WOULDN’T SUPRISE ME IF THEY PAID 60,000 YOUTHS TO LIE ABOUT BEING RECRUITED BY UPND. HOW CAN THEY EVEN CARRY ON WITH THEIR LIVES KNOWING THAT THEY ARE JUST SPEWING LIES EVERYTIME THEY OPEN THEIR MOUTHS – THE PREACH ABOUT CHRISIANITY !

  17. Well if these allegations are true then UPND will be disqualified simple. If PF decides to join in they too will be disqualified and maybe Zambians will finally have the leadership they deserve.

  19. Ba Mwanza: You know the places were Training is being conducted and you rush to make announcement. Why not work with the Police so that those who are conduction training are arrested red handed. If they will be able to recruit 60,000 youths then you are gone. Stop making such useless announcement, It is not adding value to PF. i am confident that PF will win and see what you doing.

  21. This is careless and dangerous. Only the police are qualified to make a statement like this in case there is credible intelligent information. This has potential to actually invite enemies of our country to distabilise us. Let’s be wise in what goes into public media. I hope the IG can caution parties from making such careless statements. We are one Zambia one nation one people and we need to be united even with different opinions and affiliations.

  22. I thought the PF government purchased those military armoured vehicles to counter or quell any possible violence after elections. If the main opposition party is planning to cause mayhem during the elections then there’s something they have seen that the ruling party is doing to stifle any chances of the opposition from carrying the day. Maybe the opposition is just reacting to the PF’s frustrations because the ruling party has been frustrating the opposition in everything from day one

  23. PF jokes as usual. Zambia army and all defense apparatus in the country is not even 60,000, not even half that number. Pf hallucinations because of the impending loss of their livelihoods them being parasites to government. You think recruiting 60,000 yourths is a simple thing that can be done secretely.

  24. The silent majority and UPND Alliance want a change of Govt on August 12. The Voters want their votes to count this Election Season. If PF are going to try and rig the 2021 Election the same way they rigged 2016 Elections they are going to be shocked. Voters have suffered enough and want ECL and PF out of Govt. Any attempts by PF to violently rig the Election will be met with equal force. Once bitten twice shy.

  25. This Mozambican is being an alarmist, he must be arrested after the polls and deported to Lourenço Marques! Kac.hikala aka kaaya saaaana.

  26. Antonio stop embarrassing yourself. You guys are government and if there was evidence that a Militia Group is being set up. Why don’t you send in the police and round up these people.

  27. Stop alarming the nation with falsehood which is only existing in your mind. We have enough security wings to deal with such things. This is exactly where PF is loosing it.Instead of Police Spokes Person, there he goes yapping fabricated & unsubstantiated claims which have the potential to instill fear in citizens. Weather PF,UPND or any other part we are one. Let People vote freely for their preferred candidates with this cheap lie.

  28. Bane 60,000 youths to be mobilized by UPND Alliance in Mandevu to cause mayhem in Matero and Mandevu. Does this boy know what he is talking about. Does this boy Antonio Mwanza know what logistics are required to train and mobilize such a number? That will mean the entire govt defence and Security forces being engaged in battles day and night. That man power strength if unleashed on any country will cause more destruction and as a nation we can’t contain it. The truth is the PF has sensed defeat and will instead cause problems and blame it on UNPD Alliance. Such fake allegations will make the work of security personnel difficult because they will start chasing the wind instead of doing their routine work. How possible is it for the UPND Alliance plan such evil when they want to get into…

  29. Stop alarming the nation with falsehood which is only existing in your mind. We have enough security wings to deal with such things.

Weather PF,UPND or any other part we are one. Let People vote freely for their preferred candidates with this cheap lie. Lastly lets have order. Not every Jim & Jack briefing the nation. Other wise cry my beloved country Zambia.

  31. I am not surprised. HH can very well do this. We have seen how thousands of UPND cadres were ferried to Lusaka when HH was summoned by police.

  32. HH is capable of killing even his hardcore supporter to gain sympathy. Remember Joesph Kunda? He was killed in Lusaka violence in December last year. This time, HH plans to kill many more as he has seen the unavoidable defeat.

  33. Now that the plan is exposed, I hope police act ‘professionally’ and arrest all those behind this.

  34. It is the time we kept our guard. Let’s not allow the anarchy by the losing candidate. This is why HH has hired Cambridge Analytica and John Arroyo the certified militant. The sole intention is to set the country on fire if he loses.

  35. @mwaiche wandi You spent so much time writing about those who are not worth your time! This shows, the level of desperation in UPND cadres. You are trying hard to convince people that there is nothing like that has been reported here. Poor show. You need to be more effective next time. You have completely failed to drive the point home.

  36. On one hand UPND signed a peace agreement with PF and on the other it is planning this! Now you know, black mamba is never to be trusted.

  37. If you want to tell a lie, think deeply so that it sounds factual. The UPND can’t disrupt elections now because they believe that they have already won. They’ll only become mischievous after the results are announced. That’ll be the right time to closely watch them. So this chap is just an alarmist

  38. A Russian registered ship carrying arms is headed to Zambia. The ship has been intercepted by a EU country. A Zambian flag was imbedded on ship.

    What is convict up to buying arms from Russian mercenaries

  39. So many comments by “individuals” in South Africa? These must be Zambian employees at the Zambian High Commission in Pretoria who are scared of losing their jobs if another political party takes offices. I commend you for realizing that only 900,000 people in Zambia are employed in the formal sector out of a population of around 18 million. We need a government that will facilitate the creation of an abundance of jobs, period.

  40. This is not far fetched, given the levels of desperation in the opposition one can safely say we need to be alert. The peace Zambia has enjoyed is only by devine intervention.

  41. This is a well known tactic by PF. When a Hungry Hyena wants to eat its children it first accuses its Children of smelling like goats. PF is planning to deploy its Militias,Commanders and Generals at Polling Stations to rig the 2021 Elections. UPND and the Voters must stay alert and repel these PF Militias, Commanders and Generals when they try to steal the votes at Polling Stations. The PF idea of rigging the 2021 Elections in this instance is to chase UPND Alliance Polling Agents from the Polling Stations and then stuff the Ballot Boxes with Pre-marked Ballot Papers . There is going to be war at Polling Stations if PF Cadres attempt to stuff the Ballot Boxes with Pre-marked Ballot Papers. Polling Stations will be turned into battle Zones it PF tries to steal the Vote at Polling…

  42. After the Rwandan arms incident Lungu has not learnt a lesson. Now a Russian registered ship carrying arms is headed to Zambia. The ship has been intercepted by a EU country. A Zambian flag was imbedded on ship.
